U S Senator Dick Durbin and U S Senator Mark Kirk , both of Illinois along with Peoria Congressman Aaron Schock met Thursday with FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate regarding federal aid funding to help the county governments hit by tornadoes last November. All three lawmakers made clear Thursday of their concerns regarding FEMA's formulas to award money to hard hit counties and which, according to the lawmakers, put Tazewell and Woodford Counties, for instance, at a disadvantage following the disaster and pressed the agency to be more consistent and fair. Earlier this year, both Illinois senators introduced legislation to bring consistency and fairness to FEMA's disaster declaration process.
